The Vinyl Pressing Process
It’s a tried and tested technology that has been gradually improved over 60 years. Today, we use only the best maintained hydraulic presses – these presses contain 2 pre-heated moulds which are fitted with the stampers (which hold your music!). We then pre-heat the Vinyl matter and this is forced into the machine and sandwiched between two dry labels and the stampers are copied into the Vinyl material under a pressure of 100 tons or more at 160°C (345°F).
Duplion prides it self on producing high quality products, when you receive a Vinyl product made by us it will be of the highest standards available in the industry having undergone several quality control tests during the process.

Here is a selection of colour swatches available. Please note that displaying physical colour samples using web colours is not an exact sciences, colours displayed here are approximations of the vinyl colour and may appear different to the ones displayed when pressed.
